After being away from Midway for 18 months I will be returning for about 30 days beginning in mid December 2011. Each Winter, every albatross nest on the 3 islands in the atoll are counted manually. I don't know the exact protocol at this time but basically we walk all the nesting areas and put a small spot of paint at each nest to prevent double counting. I don't know what my days will be like but I will try to write regularly on this blog.
